And this is what it looks like when you green-screen a pirate baby into a pirate picture!

We had some bad news today about my cousin Gavin, who has been diagnosed with cancer of the bladder.

Dammit, he's been through too much in his life to have to deal with this now! He was born with only one kidney, which was withered, and wasn't expected to live more than a few weeks - a year at the absolute most. He is now 38 years old and up till the cancer diagnosis looked to be going strong. By the age of 10 he'd had two kidney transplants, which both failed, and then refused to go back on the waiting list for years so that medicine could advance and improve his chances of the third and final transplant actually working. He has spent most of his life tied to dialysis, with all the knock-on health complaints associated with that, and has had more surgery than I can count. When he finally had his third kidney transplant a few years ago, it gave him a new lease of life and he has never looked back.

After going through so much, it would be too cruel if cancer took him now.

Preliminary tests suggest the cancer is contained within the bladder and can be treated, but waiting on further tests.

All positive thoughts and prayers gratefully accepted.
